5) Go Over the Edge!
This is a big building . . . one of the tallest buildings in Waikiki, that is. A rappel of 40 stories is huge by anyone’s standards. This rappel is something rock climbers, mountaineers, and fire fighters salivate over. It is definitely an extreme event and probably a once in a lifetime experience.

All of it is provided at no cost to our athletes and their families
